config.ini needs a few more tweaks.  The mail comes from the wrong 
address at the moment for example...

I'm thinking of this: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/perchild.html

suexec only works with actual cgi scripts.

I agree.

One other thing that isn't clear to me.  With the mod_python example in 
the documentation (I added a rewrite rule to redirect to /roundup/) 
there is no way to get an index page, ie a list of the hosted trackers. 
  The builtin server does this if you have more than one tracker and 
don't specify a specific one.  How would you make a mod_python setup do 
the same?  Or should we simply use a static index page that needs 
updating whenever a new tracker is added?
